Howdy, folks! We’re back with another cookbook update. If you haven’t heard, I’m publishing a teatime cookbook of literary recipes with Skyhorse Publishing, and I’m wildly excited about it. Last month I gave a quick rundown of what we had put together, and today I’m going to be updating you guys on our progress. So here we go! ^.^
- I’m on to the editing stage! At the time of my last update, I was working on the last round of recipe testing, making sure everything was just right. That’s pretty much done now (just a few loose ends to tie up), so I’m currently editing the manuscript and pictures. Here’s a taste of some of the photos you’ll see in the book:
- We’re adding more teas! Originally the plan was to have 5 teas, but later on I had the idea of having one tea for every book featured in the cookbook. I ran the idea by my editor, and she gave me the green light! Now there will be 22 awesome teas, including ones inspired by The Chronicles of Narnia, Winnie the Pooh, and The Hobbit.
- We have a cover! I shared a potential cover photo in my last post, and my editor recently sent me a sample of the front cover! I love it soooo much, you guys. It turned out even better than I pictured in my head. Here it is (!!!):
AHHHH!!! SO MUCH EXCITEMENT, YOU GUYS!
I love seeing all the pieces come together. It’s starting to look like a real book now!
More updates as things progress! 😀
